Brittle nails

The nails of our fingers and toes are considered in Ayurveda to be a by-product of bone formation ( asthi dhatu). Proper nutrition for building strong bones is thus essential if you want to have healthy nails. If there is insufficient intake of calcium and magne?sium, or malabsorption of these minerals, the nails become rough, brittle, cracked, and split, and ridges and creases may appear. If you have these symptoms, you can be sure they are signs of malnutrition of the bone tissue.

The above pack is for 30 days. Following is the dosage details:

Amla Saar: 3 teaspoons twice daily with equal quantity of water .
Vara Churna: 1 teaspoon twice daily with plain water.
Arogyavardhni Vati: 2 tablets twice daily before meals.

To strengthen the bones and nails, take over-the-counter supplements of calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Your formula should include a daily dose of approximately

  • calcium 1,200 mg.
  • magnesium 600 mg.
  • zinc 60 mg.

Take the supplements at bedtime for best results. A general mineral supplement might also be helpful. Amla is nature's best natural source of Calcium and Vitamin C. It provides good nutrition to the body and prevents nail infections as well as increases general immunity of the patient. Amla Saar can be used for such problems.

You may be getting enough minerals, but toxins in the colon may be preventing their complete absorption. If you are taking calcium, magnesium, and zinc as a dietary supplement and your nails are still brittle, that indicates that you are not absorbing these minerals. The culprit is over accumulation of toxins (ama) in the colon.

A safe and simple way to cleanse the colon of the ama is to regularly take the herbal compound triphala, either in capsule form or in powder form.. Steep about '/2 teaspoon in '/2 to 1 full cup of warm water, strain, and drink. You can take this Vara Churna at night before going to bed, or steep it overnight in cold water and drink it first thing in the morning. It will gradually elimi?nate the ama.

Another way to promote the growth and strength of your nails is to eat a handful of white sesame seeds every day. A handful of sesame seeds contain about 1,200 mg. of calcium and magnesium.

Either one of the Ayurvedic herbs ashvagandha (Indian ginseng) ?or shatavari (Asparagus) (1/2 teaspoon) taken in a cup of hot milk twice a day may also help to prevent brittle nails.

Aerobic exercise such as swimming, jogging, or aerobic dance, or the sequence of yoga postures known as the Sun Salutation , should also be helpful. Exercise improves the circulation and helps carry the minerals to the tissue at the root of the nails.

Because the nails are connected with the asthi dhatu (bone tissue), strengthening asthi will be helpful. Taking Lakshadi Guggulu tablets twice a day, after lunch and dinner, will help to strengthen your nails.

In some individuals, brittle nails and bone loss go together. Specifically, in women of menopausal age, brittle nails may suggest weakness in the asthi dhatu. So if you have brittle nails, it would be wise to investigate the possibility that osteoporosis may be developing.

For Fungal nail Infections- Use tea tree oil, Chakramarda tailam, Neem capslues . Neem is an excellent herbal remedy for nail infections, fungal infections and general skin problems.
